This book/audiobook was very entertaining and kept wanting more. I travel alot for work and this has given me much entertainment on those long drives...Show More » Definitely a cliff a hanger at the end. Glad the 3rd book was already out so I could listen to it right after. Enjoy.
The ending was a bit like a magic trick. Once you step back, there are some plot holes created, but in the moment, it's perfect. It wraps up a lot of ..Show More »problems that I have both with this book and the previous installments. I like that it also did not tie everything up in a nice bow. It acknowledges that the situation is messy and there are still problems left. It left me wanting to know more and watch the aftereffects.
Parts I liked least are definitely Cia and Tomas. They were interesting enough everyday views into the world at the start of the series and descending into increasingly horrendous levels of boring. The other characters around them are intriguing and do a good job with making up for our main characters' deficiencies. Cia's obsession with her boyfriend is tiresome especially since it is very much a show and not tell relationship. We know they are in love because they both obsess over it, but there is nothing that makes their relationship believeable or interesting. It is not the worst relationship in a recent dystopian series (that would be the borderline abusive one between Deuce and Fade in the razorland trilogy), it's still pretty annoying though. Cia is a bit better at the end after some of her character flaws are acknowledged, but Tomas is just a useless block in the series.
